Former President and Member of the Ukrainian Engineers' Society of America Ordained as Priest
By Salvko Kryshtalsky

On March 8, 2003 George Bazylevsky, after many years of his professional life as an engineer, our colleague and friend, began a new journey serving God as a pastor. In choosing this new calling Fr. George follows in the footsteps of his father, who also chose priesthood in his later years, and his grandfather.

The process began some time In 2002 in St. Sophia’s Seminary in South Bound Brook, NJ. On February 12, 2003 He was ordained as Deacon in St. Sophia's Seminary Chapel of the Three Hierarchs in South Bound Brook, New Jersey. One month later on March 8th 2003, in the presence of several Priests and Deacons He took his final vows and was ordained as Priest by Archbishop Antonij in All Saints Church in New York City. The liturgy was attended by his family, friends, colleagues from UESA and work as well as by many of his former classmates and other students from Salzburg gymnasium.

By the amount of the attendees, the church was packed with standing room only, one can surmise that this Shepherd will have a following in His new endeavor. Following the Liturgy everyone was invited by the Bazylevsky and McMeekin families for the “Agape-Luncheon” in the Church Hall to honor and congratulate "young Fr. George."

We all wish Fr. George and his lovely wife Oksana many healthy years in His new vocation. "MNORAYA LITA"
